La phrase et le vocabulaire de J.-K. Huysmans

Marcel Cressot

Paris: Librairie Droz, 1938.


A mammoth 604-page compendium of the neologisms, arcane words and argot that Huysmans used in his writings. Undeniably useful in providing instances and references to the unusual words that Huysmans uses, it is not, however, actually a dictionary, so many words that are otherwise difficult to find remain undefined. Despite this, it is a treasure trove of information and research for lexicographers.
